Five Free Elgg Themes

Five Free Elgg Themes You Should Try Out

1. ElggDesign Community Theme

If you’re looking for a theme with a FrontPage that looks like the Facebook FrontPage this is as close as you’re going to get.  It’s simple, clean and really easy to setup.

2. SeaShells Theme

Another clean and light theme. Kind of reminds me of the Joomla Admin Interface in a good way.


Clean, shades of gray and blue. W3C validated CSS 2.1 file. No -webkit and -moz, and thus no crazy Elgg bubbles!!!

A clean, elegant looking  and fast loading theme for elgg 1.7.1 with light shades. What i tried to do in this theme is to stick on to elgg default looks and to give a clean appearance. I will try funky things from next release onwards.

5. Social Web+ Theme

Completely different than most of the other themes. Looks more like a WordPress portfolio theme, but I kind of like it just because it’s different.
